Teen Supports Outreach for Mental Health Awareness

Basim Blunt
Katie Nagin

The students at STEM wanted to use Dayton Youth Radio training for community outreach. In this series we'll be listening to student produced PSA's or public service announcements that represent issues important to teenagers.

Youth Radio producer Katie Nagin's family moved to Dayton when she was in middle school. She wanted produced a PSA about mental illness to let teens now it's okay to seek help and there's nothing to be ashamed of.  Katie says that she personally has benefited from the Linder Center of Hope in Mason, Ohio, a facility where adolescents can under stress can talk to counselors.  Let's meet Katie and listen to her PSA.

The Dayton Regional STEM school prepares students with the skills necessary to compete in the global economy while nurturing in our young people the same enthusiasm for discovery, invention and application that launched the vision for powered flight. WYSO and Dayton Youth Radio are excited to work with the students at the STEM School. Special thanks to STEM school Media Arts teacher Emerie Whitman-Allen.

Funding for the Dayton Youth Radio Project comes from the Virginia Kettering Foundation, the Ohio Arts Council and The Dayton Foundation.
